Namring (Spring) Darjeeling Black Tea

description

Our first offering from Namring of this season, this is one of the 'stronger' first flush teas if we can use that word for first flush.
Its boldness cannot be unmasked at all. It can be slightly bitter if brewed for long which might be a rare quality in comparison to other first flush teas. All in all, a different first flush tea.
